We're done with our check up with Dra. Eusebio...

Prognosis:
Bunso's performance was impressive.  He has very good sitting span and everything went very well.  He showed Dra. he can read simple words and was able to reply to Dra's questions properly/correctly most of the time, this made Dra. smiled and advised us to continue his schooling under his current school (which is actually not recommended initially  due to the number of students per class - more than 10).  :)
On the downside, he still has fleeting eye contact and he doesn't reply or he diverts the topic if Dra. ask him something he cannot answer.  :(  Therefore, he is still diagnosed ASD, Mild.

As for kuya, well, Dra. said just to allow him to graduate nalang sa current school niya and focus on looking for a vocational course where we can enroll him to enhance his drawing skills, he's very good with details and has good peripheral vision (he said he wants to be an architect when he grows up). Diagnosis? He was previously ASD, Mild.  But now, ASD lang.  :(

Sana they, specially bunso, keeps on improving... at makahabol na sa level ng kids typical of their age, lalo na emotionally....

I have a cousin who has ASD. Hindi sya nakakapagsalita,  not a single word. She can make very little sound, like cat and dog sounds. Even when she cries, wala ka talagang maririnig na sound or iyak. Makikita mu nalang sa facial expression niya. Hindi sya marunong maligo mag-isa. Kapag nag poop sya hindi sya marunong mag hugas. Is it because wala yung parents niya. Tita ko lang kasi ang nag aalaga sa kanya. I'm not saying na hindi sya natutukan or naalagaan ng maigi. Iba pa din kasi ang alaga ng ina. Nung bata pa sya nakakapag salita naman sya 1-2 words. Pero ngayon, as in totally wala na.

My only advise to you mommy is to continue talking with your sons. Continue communicating with them and as much as possible never get tired of teaching them and assisting them with their needs. Start from the basic like simple hygience. It's very important talaga. So that when they grow up they can take care of themselves. Yan kasi ang wala sa pinsan ko kaya siguro imbes na mag improve sya, naging worst pa.

By the way, my cousin is 21 years old now.

Hi maarcee_0312.

I totally agree with you!

I believe that we had short comings on how we were able to treat kuya during the times na ka-age pa niya si bunso.  Although we gave all the therapies he needs to help him, he indeed needed someone who can converse or talk to him during this time.  Unfortunately, ang yaya niya nun (no offense kay yaya, she took great care of kuya naman), hindi talkative, tahimik lang din... and both me & his dad are usually not around, since we're both working.

Kay bunso, since na-experience na namin kay kuya ito, we had a watchful eye on his development, we kept talking to him, asking him questions ("what" sa umpisa, then "who", then "where", now we're asking him "why").  He learns to understand the question and give the correct answer after a few days of constant conversations lang, although he is still delayed for his age, but the good thing there is may steady improvement siya... dyan ako napapa-ngiti.  Sa self-help skills, wala naman problem, he can eat, pee/go to the bathroom. change clothes by himself.

For your cousin, I'm sorry to hear about that. Sayang talaga ang mga chances to help her improve, kahit life-skills sana, naturuan siya... nanghihinayang ako sa kanya, lalo na girl pa siya.... what does her parents say about her?  Sana may hinabol na theraphy now, kahit na life-skills lang....

Her family lives in Ireland. Bata pa lang sya iniwan na sya dito sa Pilipinas.  Nakakaawa nga sis kasi babae pa man din. Before, my mga therapy sya, pero ngayon wala na.  Nag aral din sya sa sped-school. siguro mga 2-3 years lang sya ng school tapos hindi na. Para kasing hopeless na yung case ng cousin ko since hindi sya nakakapag salita. Sa ngayon yung tita ko nalang ang nagtuturo sa kanya. Naisip ko lang panu nalang pag nawala na yung tita ko, sino nalang mag aalaga sa kanya. May magulang at kapatid nga sya pero parang wala naman. Kung nun nga hindi sya naalagaan panu pa kaya pag tanda niya.

 :'(  :'(  :'(

...I suddenly feel low, depressed again... I was asked by an aquaintance if my bunso has mild ASD.  This person is already someone who knows me/us and my children quite well.  But suddenly the questions feels different, it's like a realization, is it that obvious that he is in the spectrum?  I can't shake this feeling off.  All the feeling I had when he was initially labeled came pouring once again....

Grabe, hirap, parang emotional roller coaster!

Hi Ms. Pychi,
I can relate. Kahit alam kong may ASD ang son ko, tapos everytime na may assessment and ganun pa din ang dx, nadedepress pa din kaming mag-asawa. Whatís good about your son is, he is verbal right? Iíve quite a few friends na non-verbal pa din ang child nila, which also worries me pagdating sa son ko kasi until now babbling pa din sya and heís turning 3 in July. Though nag speech therapy na siya 2x a week plus OT twice a week also.
Just pray and bear in mind that the Lord will always be with us every step of our journey.  Let s us still be thankful that we are still blessed with angels no matter what.

Good day po..
gusto ko lang ishare worries ko and hopefully makakuha din ng advice regarding sa anak ko. She will be 3 sa june.. hindi pa kasi sya gaano nagsasalita.. yung converasation type sa salita.
pero marami sa sya kayang sabihin n single words.. may mga 2 words din na pakonti konti.. she always ask 'sino to o ano to?" Pag may nakita sya na tao na hindi niya kilala o may bagay n hawak. She can say 'ligo n' pag gusto na niya maligo. O "wash" pag may nakita sya dumi "dirty n" sasabihin niya. She can ask and can say " tubig..kain..tinapay..chocolate coke..etc etc pag gusto niya. She know all the names of her playmates ang cousins.. pati mga tita at tito niya alam na mga names at kaya niya twagin. Whenever makakita sya matanda she will say " lolo or lola" even yung mga pey namin alam niya names. Mahilig din sya makipaglaro she can say "habol" pag gusto niya magpahabol.. knows how to play with dolls.. telephone. Lutolutan.. she can say some parts of her body. And she loves to sing a lot.. un nga lang yung iba lyrics hindi maintindihan. Pero alam mo kung ano kinakanta niya. Pag ilang beeses niya narinig ang kanta kaya na niya sabayan sometimes with actions pa.  hilig din niya sumayaw may ibat iba steps sya sa mga songs. Hilig niya mag pose.. at mag selfie. Ngaun niya ginagaya niya yung mha mini me ng showtime..sa pagrampa at pag pose.. pag hawak na niya yung toy mic niya sisigaw na sya " what up madlang pipol" un lang maiintindihan.. pero parang magpapakilala sya with posing posing. Ginagaya niya si ryza at alam niya mga dance moves ng mga sikat na kanta.. she
lovesspicture books.. tatanong niya "ano to" tapos pag sasagutin ko kaya naman niya ulitin. Pag ask mo sya she will reply with "opo or hindi po" clearly..she knows yung mga basic na gamit at kung para san sya ginagamit. Pati yung mga characters kilala na and she can say their names like dora.. kitty.. minnie mouse.. dyesebel..etc.. pag nasa simbahan kami alam na niya when to knell.. pag our father n tataas din niya kamay niya. hindi din sya money para ilagay sa basket..
Pag may hawak sya pera alam niya sabihin na "money biyi kendi or coke"  she can reconize mga kilala niya kahit sa pictures..pag tatawagin mo sya alam naman niya sumagot ng "oh"  tpos pag wala ako sa paningin niya she can say "san mama" o kung may hindi sya mahanap " san celphone.. san money.. etc.." tpos pag nakita na niya she will sa " ayun".. automatic na din sa kanya pag nagising na sya papatayin na niya yung fan tapos lalabas na ng room.
Minsan feeling ko okay naman sya pero minsan napapaisip ako kung may problema ba sa kanya.. hindi pa sya potty train till now.. magsasabi na lang sya pag tapos na niya.. hindi din niya kaya magpoint using ng index finger niya.. sasabihin na lang niya kung ano gusto niya o kaya  buong kamay ang pagturo niya. Pag naiinis sya hilig niya magtapon ng kung ano ano.. pero madili naman sya idivert kunwari nung nag swimming kami ayaw niya umahon..nung pinilit ko sya nagwawala sya.. pero pag sabihin ko punta tayo dun may maganda.. titigil naman na sya..
Tingin nyo po delayed lang ba sya sa pagsasalita? O need ko na sya ipatingin sa dev ped. Ipapasok ko na sya sa day care sa pasukan. Un kasi advice ng pedia.

Update....

Bunso is now in Grade 1, mainstream schooling.

We just got back from his recent assessment from his devped... same diagnosis  :( :( :( :(  I was so hopeful that the Mild ASD he was branded before would now be lifted since he has improved a lot, but no...

I'm now thinking of having him checked out... 2nd opinion from another devped... mukang in denial ba ako?

Hi MissPychi.

Kung feel mo na yung 2nd opining makakapag bigay ng comfort sayo tingin ko pa 2nd opinion ka na lang.
Kay Dra Arranz-Lim baka pwede. Sa ngaun ang sched niya nasa Aug na. Syapo nag assess sa anak ko eh.

as far as i know sis depende kasi sa category ng ASD . meron kasi high, classic and mild....

yun mga matatalino but kulang lang sa socialization is what they call aspergers and they are capable to have family pa nga .

i dont know lang sa tanong mo na kunga na label na asd kung bumabalik sa normal ang buhay nila?....some say yes but some nagkakaganun kasi na misdiagnose lang. what i know kasi once label its a lifelong condition. ...but definitely sis theraphy will really help our kids and will help them improve. mahirap nga lang sa bulsa magastos and dapat talaga mag save a lot for it :(

Hi! I'm a newbie here... I'm so glad that i found a thread like this... It made me realize things na hindi ko narerealize not until I found this thread and read what's in here.... I have a 4-year-old son... Speech and language delayed, as a result he cannot communicate what he wants... ang tanging malinaw na pwede niyang sabihin na gusto niya ay "Dodo" (milk)... He follows simple commands pero kelangang ulitin ng ulitin... He does not respond immediately sa pagtawag namin ng name niya... working Mom ako at naiwan siya sa pangangalaga ng parents ko... ang tagal kong in-denial na may problema ang anak ko, not until nakapagbasa basa na ako sa thread na ito.... The guilt is killing me.. bakit ngayon ko lang narealize na may problema ang anak ko... ayokong manisi ng ibang tao, kundi sarili ko lang... Please Mommies, help me where to start... ang tagal kong inantay na magsalita siya, not realizing may problema na pala.... lagi kasi nilang sinasabi, lalake kasi, magsasalita din yan etc.... Please help me, i need your advices...
